I haven’t tried Gear VR yet.
However after reading Carmack’s twitter I have my reservations about VR in the form of GearVR. From what I gathered, graphics have to be a la Quake 1 or even worse in order for VR game to perform smoothly on GearVR. It seems like a huge step backward, compare to let’s say Crescent Bay or Steam VR (although I haven’t heard any feedback on Steam VR in comparison to Crescent Bay).
Fanboyism aside, is it really that awesome to be in VR that looks like a quite dated video game ?
It just feels like OR chose wrong direction based on the market size and now it’s trying hard to shove it down our throats “it looks like ****, but it’s VR!!!”
Just wondering if I am the only one who feels that way
